You won't be sorry!

  • 5 of 5

This house is the first one we've ever rented for a vacation. I hope all of them work out this well because this house is VERY nice.

We had a bit of a family reunion here and slept six adults and three children ages two and under in this home. With that many people, we utilized every square inch, but it never felt overcrowded. We stayed for a week and ate all but one meal here and preparation of food went well.

It's an easy walk to two different beaches, the grocery store, the pier, several restaurants, and very important to us, ice cream! We also golfed at Bird Creek Golf Course, which we highly recommend. It's just south of town.

The home also has a washer and dryer available for use. With her two small children, it came in very handy for our daughter.

The owner is very easy to work with and answered any questions we had promptly. As I said before, you won't be sorry renting this home.

This is a great place to stay with a family! It is clean ,updated,spacious and is in a great location. Nice kitchen for preparing meals. Within walking distance to play Putt Putt,get ice cream, go to the beach,restaurants,coffee shop, and shopping. There is a nice Farmers Market

on Saturday. Within driving distance to Caseville , Harbor Beach and other nearby towns. It was nice to have a washer and dryer, BBQ, firepit, WiFi and TV with Roku. Air conditioning and ceiling fans make it very comfortable. Definitely would go back!

Lovely home, great for families!

  • 5 of 5

Port Austin is a wonderful place to visit! This home is located in the heart of downtown and you can literally walk to everything. With three bedrooms and a loft area it is perfect for extended families or large groups. The owner was easy to work with during the booking process and easily accessible throughout our stay when a question arose. If you are traveling with young children I would advise bringing two baby gates along - there is a single step in the living room and then a stairway leading to the upstairs.

Nice and spacious!

  • 5 of 5

We took two children, their spouses and our grandchildren for a family reunion in Port Austin. My youngest grandchild said, "Isn't this so great to have three families together all in one house? But, we're really one family, aren't we?" Thanks to Tom and this nicely remodeled house to give our little guy and us this fun experience. I loved being able to go out the door to walk two minutes to the harbor with my coffee in the morning. Close to everything and so comfortable. The grandkids loved walking to the pier and to the beach. We never had time to watch tv or movies, but if you have rain the tv is huge. We did use one table in one of the three big common rooms for a zigsaw puzzle that everyone took turns working on. Everyone could spread out and not feel cramped at all! (Especially nice with three teenagers and two younger grandkids.) Give this place a try!

Great location, spacious, and well maintained

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our family during the 4th of July weekend. Located right in the center of town, we were minutes - if not seconds - by foot from everything we could want. The house is not much to look at from the outside, but the inside is completely redone, and beautifully so, and it is HUGE. You could sleep 15 very comfortably, and there is plenty of room for air mattresses. There is a back yard that has two patio sets, enough space that is perfect for yard games, a grill, and a fire pit. There is one TV that has access to a Roku (provided by the owners) and wifi is provided for personal devices.

Saturdays during the summer are very festive and fun due to the Farmers Market which is only one block from this house. It is also a block from the beach, a block from a nice restaurant, a block from the coffee house/laundry mat (which you do not have to use since this location has a washer and dryer), and is within site of the local Putt Putt, which my kids loved.

The owners were extremely accessible and easy to work with. We contacted them a few times during our stay for random reasons and they responded quickly and were quite friendly.

We loved our weekend and would rent again in a heartbeat. Do not judge this book by the cover... once you open the door, you feel like you are living in luxury.
